- CART RENTAL
All Florida Clubs are cart mandatory properties. In conjunction with the rental a golf cart, the driver/renter of the cart accepts that he or she will operate the cart in a safe manner, will adhere to all rules set forth by the Club and/or ClubLink, and accepts complete liability for any damages to the golf cart or personal property. The driver/renter voluntarily agrees and accepts the risks of using a golf cart, and on behalf of the driver/renter, any passengers in the cart, any personal representatives and heirs hereby voluntarily release ClubLink its owners, officers, employees, and agents from any and all claims, actions, causes of actions, suits, judgments that may in any way or manner arise out of use of the golf cart.

The driver/renter of the golf cart will return the golf cart to the locally designated return area, not leave the golf cart in the car parking lot and for further safety will have possession/control of golf cart keys if the golf cart is ever left unattended.
- PACE OF PLAY
It is important to understand what is an appropriate pace of play, and not to generalize or suggest that a standard round at every club equate to 4 hours. We follow an objective to rate by time, how long it should take a foursome to play each hole at the respective club. By rating each hole, we can formulate an appropriate pace of play for the front and back nine (the pace of play for a front nine and back nine often differ). The resulting pace of play for eighteen holes will often exceed four hours. More consistent course playing times can be achieved with a greater pace of play awareness. The Starter and Play Coordinators facilitate this awareness. Please refer to the Time Pace Chart for an example of how pace of play can be affected by time allowed to complete holes.
- RAIN CHECK POLICIES
For all forms of guest fees or reciprocal fees paid other than for Corporate Events, the following structure applies for granting of Rain Checks regardless of weather conditions at the start of play:
- In the event a person does not complete 6 holes due to inclement weather, an 18 hole Rain Check shall be granted
- In the event a person does complete 7 holes but not more than 13 holes, a 9 hole Rain Check shall be granted
